thinkers who ought to know better. obama is out to kill the wounded. now that republicans are down. he's not going to make any proposals that republicans might actually sign onto. instead, he's going to make them look bad on things like immigration. but it's interesting -- >> but that's not working, cynthia. >> -- supposed to be the party of personal responsibility. >> that narrative, gene, isn't working because quite clearly there's a bipartisan plan on immigration as we see today. anytime boehner, the speaker of the house, who i don't dislike, would come out for a background check on guns, just push one measure, if he could get that through the house, he'd be a leader on the newtown, connecticut, horror. he could be the leader. it would force harry reid to do the same. he doesn't have to be a victim. >> i think dr. tucker's diagnosis was absolutely right. and i think, you know, this is the party's way of trying to deal with its own internal contradictions and issues. the republican party has issues, and the number one issue which they don't want to deal with is that most of the ameri
realist. if he assesses the situation a couple years down the road and sees that the clinton machine is still out there, and by the way, hillary took the twol clinton man to the state department. that was hillary land over there, not obama land. >> i understand that completely. >> if that's still going on, i think joe biden will look at it and say i'm not sure i have the organization to do it, and also he might not want to call the president out on it and take the gamble with the president because i'm not sure he would necessarily get the answer that he'd want to hear. >> steve kroft tried to get at the political meaning of the interview. this is rare. usually in our business if you know joy and howard, if you get an interview of this incredible quality, the president and secretary of state, the two most important people with bill clinton in the democratic party, you don't ask why you got it. but here he is apparently again trying to figure out why the two showed up together. here he is, steve kroft. >> i have to ask you, what's the date of expiration on this endorsement? >> oh, stev
white house. he has helped advise president obama on some of his key foreign policy decisions, including drawing down the troops in afghanistan, ending the war in iraq, and also responding to some of the natural disasters that have occurred in recent years, including haiti, and japan. he is someone who has built up a lot of trust here in the white house. you heard that today when president obama talked about him, talked about how much he meant to the staffers here. we should also mention he was pictured in the situation room during the raid on osama bin laden, so this is certainly someone who is very close to the president and will be a key figure moving forward with this white house. andrea. >> thank you so much, kristen welker. david gregory here and pete williams joining us as well. autowe've seen good chiefs of staff and bad. some of the best. jim bakker, ken duberstein, leon panetta in times of trouble. >> howard baker certainly rescuing the ronald reagan second term from don regan, a bad chief of staff by all accounts. what is the pluses and minuses of denis mcdonough. he knows the

, this was not the only interview, at least for president obama, where we learned a little new about him. he sat down with the new republic and talked about politics here in washington, and also talked about gun violence and talked about football, and some of the injuries that we've seen from representative concussions. he says i'm a big football fan, but i have to tell you, if i had a son, i'd have to think long and hard before i would let him play football." soledad. >> thank you, brianna. we'll talk with steve israel, and jack crow,e. we want to run those very comments that brianna was mentioning by him this morning. >>> other stories making news. john berman has that for us this morning. >>> a snowy, icy, rainy, sloppy commute for millions of americans this morning. the storm that coated the midwest in ice yesterday is heading north and could bring snow, freezing rain, and sleet. not a lot of fun to the northeast today. flights in and out of chicago, minneapolis, and st. louis were grounded on icy runways and check this out. firefighters shippi chipping a hydrant. frozen in time. new york went s
